I recently interviewed Lindsey Wagner, Regional Manager West with Virgin Voyages. He shared with me his list of the Top 10 Most Amazing Features on Virgin Voyages. You can watch the video below or read the transcript of these exciting things that we can’t wait to experience when BEAR VOYAGES sails on Virgin Voyages.
DAVE: Hi everyone! It’s Dave and today we have a special guest. We have Lindsey Wagner from Virgin Voyages. Lindsay is the Regional Manager West. Thank you so much for joining us Lindsey.
LINDSEY: Absolutely! Thanks for having me Dave. I’m coming to you live from Richard’s Rooftop on top of Scarlet Lady, virtually.
DAVE: It looks amazing. I cannot wait to see the ship and that stained glass what’s the what’s the kind of glass?
LINDSEY: Dichroic, dichroic glass. Say that 10 times fast.
DAVE: So anyway, we invited Lindsay here today to give us a rundown of some of the best things from Virgin Voyages. What do you have for us, Lindsay?
LINDSEY: So I thought that I would put together a top 10 list of the most amazing features, qualities that we have on board our ships and what we have cooking here at Virgin Voyages. So let me share them with you today.
I put together a top 10 list of the most amazing features, qualities that we have on board our ships.
NUMBER 10: It wouldn’t be a countdown if we at least didn’t start with the actual product themselves: Scarlet Lady and Valiant Lady. They are our two sister ships that are due to launch in 2021. They are absolutely stunning and gorgeous as you can see from the pictures. They’re modeled after kind of the sleek elegant hull of a yacht. So it almost kind of has a more super yacht type type look to it.
NUMBER 9: the most amazing feature that gets everyone excited is the fact that there will be no children on board this ship it is adults only you have to be 18 plus to to sail with us.
NUMBER 8: our Mediterranean itineraries we’re really excited about. Scarlet in the Caribbean, but i have to tell you that we’re even just as excited for Valiant Lady in her Mediterranean itineraries. She will be sailing round trip out of Barcelona on three different Mediterranean itineraries and I think the one that you’re most excited about is our Spanish Obsession; stopping off or overnighting in Malaga as well as Ibiza. which is a perfect segue into
NUMBER 7: the Beach Club at Bimini and Ibiza. I put both of them on one slide and they both deserve equal credit because the Beach Club at Bimini is Virgin’s private beach club that we built out in the Bahamas. So it’s a signature port of call for Scarlet Lady. Now whenever Valiant begins to sail the main port of call is the overnight in Ibiza. We will be spending almost a full 24 hours there so enough time to to get in trouble!
NUMBER 6: our onboard eateries. Virgin likes to flip the script on really everything that we do so we decided to get rid of the buffets. There’s no main dining room, no forced formal wear. There are 20 plus eateries on board our ship and the most amazing thing about that is that all of the eateries that you see there on your screen are also included so there is not an up charge for that.
NUMBER 5: Yellow Leaf Hammocks. This one I think is a really cool aspect to every single sea terrace that we have on board and that red hammock that you see there on your screen are made by this company called Yellow Leaf Hammocks which is a social enterprise that fosters women’s empowerment and community transformation in rural Thailand and what’s neat about this is they actually inscribe their initials on every single one of those hammocks.
NUMBER 4: if you’re really looking to splurge and sail like a rock star we have 78 mega rock star and rock star quarters on board, all approved by Ginger Spice herself. She was given that task by Richard Branson to make sure that they were up to snuff. And I can tell you that they passed with flying colors! I’m really excited to talk about that a little later.
NUMBER 3: Squid Ink. We have brought on board a cruise ship: a tattoo studio! So for any sailors out there that are looking to permanently document their voyage. We got you covered. We partnered up with world famous Tattoo Inc in helping us design this space. So this space is unlike really anything you have ever seen on a ship. But I will assure you that when the ship is rocking the needle is not moving. So you can be sure of that.
NUMBER 2: we’ve got our Lick Me Till Ice Cream and no that is not a typo. We love our puns here at Virgin Voyages. We have an ice cream shop on board called Lick Me Till Ice Cream. Ice cream is included in your voyage fair and on select days actually served by the resident diva that we have on board as a member of our Happenings Cast.
NUMBER 1: unlike anything you have ever seen anywhere you have ever been, we have Shake for Champagne. Virgin Voyages has an amazing app that you’ll be able to download that will serve as your guide for your entire voyage. And when you have this app open on board and you take your phone and you shake it you will see little champagne bubbles appear and a button that says push me. When you push it and confirm that you want it, a chilled bottle of Moet et Chandon champagne will be delivered to your exact location on board. Because you should never go without champagne while you are on your holidays. We are super excited to showcase this whenever we begin sailing in 2021.
And that’s it. The top 10 of all things Virgin Voyages!
DAVE: Wow those those look amazing. I cannot wait to shake for champagne. Thank you so much for joining us today, Lindsey, and giving us a little bit of just a tease from some of the exciting things on Virgin Voyages. I can’t wait to sail with you guys and look forward to chatting with you again soon.
LINDSEY: Absolutely. Thanks Dave. Thanks everyone.
